thankful thursday

in the words of a very wise 3-year-old who i hang out with, "i like our house. we do keep nice and warm in it. i'm glad God gave us a warm house!"
this week, even more than usual, i am so thankful for my home and the energy to heat it. (although i'll probably be a little bummed when i get the bill at the end of this particularly cold, high energy usage month). blankets, hot water for showers, my very favorite wool socks and a cozy sweater are high on the list today too! i will be very thankful when the weather takes a turn for the warmer, but for the time being i am so thankful that i have a warm home to hunker down in on these cold, cold days!
(as you see we're not much for usin' the front door, so if you come over for a visit -- which you are ALWAYS welcome to do -- come around to the side and ring the bell. we'd love to see you!)


  1. Look at your cute home! So great to see where you live. It feels like I am getting an extra peek into who you are, Shana. :)

  2. What a great picture of your house! I'm not sure exactly where you live, but until 6th grade, I lived in the Merriam Park area of St. Paul. I love the character and charm houses there have.


Thanks for the comments . . . they make my day!
